(No point for participating)

i. Points shall be accumulated from these weekend tournaments played by the individual polo players for the purposes of the RSPC Leader Board Presented By Zack’s Tack.

ii. Points for the Leader Board are scored from Monthly Weekend Tournaments ONLY. As the RSPC Leader Board Presented By Zack’s Tack will be more competitive, to be more equitable with the points, the points shall be calculated in the following manner:

The Points (as above *) divided by the 8 (total number of Chukkas) x The number of Chukkas played by an individual player (maximum 8 Chukkas).

E.g.  Player in Winning team only played 4 Chukkas in the entire two day tournament.

25 divided by 8 x 4 = 12.5 (Points awarded will be 13 points, rounded up to the nearest whole number)

There shall also be points given for the Teams playing in the Monthly Weekend Tournament and the points for the Teams are as follows:

Winner: 5 points

2nd Place: 3 points

3rd Place:1 point

These team points shall be accumulated and at the end of the year after the last Monthly Weekend Tournament is played, the team with the highest points shall win the President’s Cup, which shall be presented to the winning Sponsor (i.e. Amax Mall, At 6, Bilal Foods Corporation, World of Feng Shui or Zack’s Tack).
